http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cambodian_general_election,_2013

Cambodia held general elections on July 28th, 2013. Only the preliminary results are in so far, so I will give those out for now. I don't know when the official results are due out, but I think it's in mid-August.

The incumbent Cambodian People's Party won 49.36% of the vote and 67 seats, five seats over the majority threshold of 62 seats and representing a drop of 23 seats from their results in the last election in 2008.
The main opposition party, the Cambodian National Rescue Party (formed from a merger of the Sam Rainsy Party and Kem Sokha's Human Rights Party), won 44.34% of the vote and 56 seats, a gain of 27 seats from the combined results of its two predecessor parties in the 2008 election.
The royalist party FUNCINPEC won only 3.3% of the vote and 0 seats, losing the 2 seats they had won back in 2008.
The League for Democracy Party won 1.02% of the vote and no seats.
The Khmer Anti-Poverty Party won 0.58% of the vote and no seats.
The Cambodian Nationality Party won 0.54% of the vote and no seats.
The Khmer Economic Development Party won 0.53% of the vote and no seats.
The Democratic Republican Party won 0.29% of the vote and no seats.

Now, the opposition has claimed massive voter fraud, and there does appear to be credible allegations supporting that. However, Prime Minister Hun Sen and the Election Commission have refused to open an investigation into the charges. So we'll see what happens. Personally, I think King Norodom Sihamoni should order an investigation into the charges.

A historic result in Quebec with the Parti Quebecois decisively defeated, and the separatist cause receives a major blow.

Belgium has a fragmented parliament and regional assemblies once more, but the terminal decline of Vlaams Belang is to be noted. Ironic that since Vlaams Blok refounded as Vlaams Belang in 2004, the party's continuous growth in elections has stalled, and declined in the last five years. Beset by internal problems, the party has also lost many of its more reasonable members.

Neither centre-left nor centre-right wins a majority, and neither will work with the Sweden Democrats (SD) which has enough seats to hold the balance of power and have made substantial gains.

UKIP have made history by entering Westminster in a by-election for the first time. The Conservatives held the seat previously.

And UKIP came within 617 votes of taking a 'safe' Labour seat in Heywood and Middleton. Labour's majority in the 2010 General Election had been almost 6,000 over the Tories, with UKIP taking only 1,215 votes. UKIP is proving to not be just a threat to the Tories.

I'm sure everyone's heard by now that the NDP won a majority government in Alberta. The new dynasty has arrived! The PCs are dead forever!

Oh, and over in the UK, The Independent endorsed the Conservative/Lib Dem coalition continuing in office.

Crazy month, huh?[crazy]

An-all-to-rare change of government in that Provence, last time that happened was in 1971.

Andreas seems to be posting that one around. I do hope Crown Prince Pavlos becomes King of Greece one day, if his father somehow would not be a possiblity, given his "image", not really his own fault mind you but there are times we have to make concessions to get what we want.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Opinion_polling_for_the_Catalonian_parliamentary_election,_2015#Seat_projections

Elections coming up in Catalonia tomorrow, and the latest poll shows JxSi getting 67-71 seats, with 68 seats required for a majority in the Catalonian Parliament. It is true that combined with other pro-independence lists, the Catalan nationalists will have a healthy majority, but therein lies the rub. CSQEP and Popular Unity Candidacies are related to the new insurgent left-wing forces in Spain today, with CSQEP coming from Podemos mainly. And those forces, most especially CSQEP, hate Artur Mas, who just so happens to be the leader of JxSi. We may have to bank on splits in the independentist camp derailing any attempt at secession, what with the pro-Union Socialists, People's Party, and Citizen's parties getting probably in the 40s of seats combined.

Hope for a united Spain next year folks, not that I think anything will happen in Spain this year about Catalan independence, given the national elections coming up by December. Which will be a whole 'nother kettle of fish, let me tell you.

The Catalonian results are in guys. While pro-independence lists together have a majority, this is not the case with individual lists. And remember that Mas is rather disliked by the other pro-independence lists, whose cooperation would be necessary for any movement on Catalonian independence. Also, the pro-union Citizen's party overperformed it's expectations according to polls, and will likely form the official opposition.

It appears that Shinzo Abe and the LDP have got what they wanted - a comfortable majority, and with like-minded members of opposition parties, a mandate for constitutional revision the hawks want. The opposition's performance in this was typically pathetic. The DPJ and JIP merged to form the Democratic Party (DP, whose Japanese name Minshinto is translatable as Democratic Progressive Party), which is in effect a big tent ranging from left-liberals to right-wing hawks and thus no clear identity besides being "the opposition party". Of the anti-constitutional revision Leftist parties, only the Japan Communist Party (which in the minds of some is barely Communist at all) gained ground, but the Left overall is weak while Japan has moved firmly to the Right on history, foreign policy and security issues.
